​Stateside

This song is by Stonewall Jackson and appears on the album Trouble & Me (1965).

This song is a cover of "Stateside" by ​Mel Tillis.
The Japany's moon is bright tonight and Tokyo is full of life
Busy people everywhere but busy people just don't care
I wanna go stateside, oh Lord I wanna go stateside

In and out the honky tonks but nothing's there I really want
Sit a while and look around, get up and leave and walk the town
I wanna go stateside, oh Lord I wanna go stateside

Gaiety girls don't understand the lonely life of a sailor man
When his heart is far away to a girl in the U.S.A.
I wanna go stateside, oh Lord I wanna go stateside

They laugh and say a man don't cry but I can't keep my blue eyes dry
Been away about two years, I know I've cried a million tears
I wanna go stateside, oh Lord I wanna go stateside
